VRRR…DOSS…GWAAN…BLO! (Série Speculari & Considerare), 2022
Her psychedelic aesthetic is still alive and well in the flyers found on her website, Joyfully Waiting, which features sound pieces, and is written with a specific and extremely round font that she created by purpose in 1998 in order to “write with bubbles”. These “flyers”, which she composes with photographs of underwater landscapes in the background, reflect her intense relationship to nature, present in her earliest photographs of lakes and mountains in the Villeneuve of her youth – like in her 2002 “Goddess” series, and in her recent immersive installation of landscapes filmed in Martinique. And, by creating her own meditative sounds – composed of natural recordings mixed with human technology that are an integral part of nature – she arrives at an alteration of consciousness.
